Review : I Love… Mango Face Mask

Review : I Love… Mango Face Mask
I received this I Love… face mask in my September JolieBox and quite a few of you were keen to know how I got along with it. As you probably know by now (I’ve harped on about it enough!) I had a severe case of man flu last week! As a result of this my skin is now awful, dry patches and spots everywhere. I decided to attempt to perk it up a little last night with this face mask.
The face mask is mango scented, it isn’t too strong, it just has a nice subtle fragrance. The mask is a peel, it comes out like gel and is very runny so be careful! You just apply the mask and wait for it to dry, then peel it off. It took about 15-20 minutes to dry completely on me. I noticed that it took longer to dry on my more oily areas such as my cheeks so may dry a lot quicker on those of you with dry skin. The mask is suitable for all skin types.
I used the entire sachet in one use but did spill a lot of it in my sink, if you are less clumsy than myself you may get two uses out of this.
Not quite sure how to pose while wearing a face mask ha!
My skin felt nice and refreshed after using this mask and to my great relief my dry patches have gone, yay! The redness of my spots had reduced after use but have since erupted. I think this is more to do with the fact that the yuckiness of them has been drawn out of my skin. Due to this though I would recommend using this mask a good few days before a night out/special occasion and not the day before.
 Another great thing about this mask is the look on your partners face when you peel it half off (as above) and then jump out on him. Quite the party trick and great with Halloween fast approaching, I may get some more in ready for the trick or treaters! 
Overall I really enjoyed this face mask, it didn’t get rid of my spots but it has certainly bought them closer to going and it did get rid of my dry patches.
I’m not sure how much this mask actually costs. I Love… products are available on-line from Superdrug and The Bath and Body Shop but neither have these face masks in stock. You can also purchase I Love… products in store at Superdrug and The Co-Operative.

    Haha, those photos made me giggle.
    I got the 'i love strawberries' one in my Joliebox. I don't think it made a huge difference to my skin, but it smelt so good I wanted to lick it off my face! haha.

    The last pic made me giggle! Great idea for Halloween like you said too haha! I do love a good face mask but I find they usually give me spots 🙁 even the ones that are meant to get rid of them! xx

      I always come out in spots after them too, I wonder if it is because I don't use them enough and there is that much crap that needs to come out! x
